Once their legal right to the land was recognised, they named their property in honour of the rather more famous dispute between the United States and Mexico over territory in Texas, USA.Texas was connected by the Texas railway line from Inglewood in November 1930. The line was closed in 1994.Up until about 1980, tobacco farming was an important industry in the area and many Italian families settled the area to run and work the tobacco farms.SchoolsTexas has a state school called Texas State School, which caters to students from Prep Year to Year 10.
